  1. Doug Stowe is a professional box maker and writer of books and articles on such. This is one of a set of Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide series. More of a "how to" than a set of boxes you can make (see his other books for that) Chapters include Tools, including options and jigs Materials Joinery options Lids Feet and bases Interiors, dividers, drawers, linings Hinges and hardware Decorating boxes Shaped boxes (bent wood, turned, and bandsawn)
  2. have the leftover planks of Aromatic Red Cedar....was try to build a small box with a few pieces.. Dry fit. Stands a whopping 4" tall, BTW... glued up, and then cleaned up when it came back out of the clamps... marking gauge to show where the tablesaw's thin kerf will go... once that was done... Had to clean up the saw marks.. And then dig through the box of hardware....to find a couple hinges..and screws.. Then a latch.. Even found a couple fancy handles for the ends... Wednesday while by Pay Day, I can get a b
  3. On my current jewelry box project, I made some small feet to hold it off the dresser top. The best way to do these is to glue up all four corners into one frame piece. Then do the profiling while they are larger pieces Then cut and do any final shaping, and attach to the bottom of your box.
  4. In my quest to keep things organized and put where I can see and get to them easily I turned to a area that is open cabinets above the two windows in my shop. The lights have been upgraded so I can see well, now I am ready to organize / get rid of stuff / add more stuff, to this area. In place are some boxes someone gave me to burn. They were to big so I resized them and made them work for the time being. So now I want better boxes, that lock so when I get on the ladder and bring them down stuff doesn't go everywhere. (Yes it has happened, you know it did) A recent email from s
  5. Just in time for Christmas. These were a labor of love and I'm really happy how they finished up. Even so, I am so-o-o-o glad they are done. 8 cryptex boxes for the grand kids. I have no delusions about how the boxes will compare to the fancy electronic gadgets kids want these days, but maybe one day they'll be appreciated. I think I posted in progress pictures of these a while back but not sure. I actually started them in the summer but shelved them until closer to Christmas. Last week, I decided I needed another, really had to scratch to remember how I'd done everything, even had to go back
  6. Here are the latest recipe boxes. I found that when the top is cut off that it becomes shorter and the box becomes lager due to the sloping front. this created a slight problem when installing the metal hinges to line up the front of the box with the top. I compensated by going to the Rob Corson wooden dowel hinge on the cedar boxes I like that setup better and will do it on any future boxes. Also will do a separate tutorial on how it is done. Herb
  7. Got an email from a friend tonight, asking if I could make a cremation box for their uncle. Absolutely. How much? Consider it a gift. So now I need to design and make this. Likely walnut or mahogany. Stay tuned. Rule of thumb is one cubic inch per pound.
  8. Had a request from facility mgr at church for tissue boxes so they would not get crushed. So this is the beginning PIP. That small piece on the corner is tyo glue on the slide for a handle. view of the bottom dados r e test fit of bottom. After this discovered I had a gap on ends of slide so will have to fill that. More later this week
  9. Today ought to prove to be an interesting day..... A couple weeks ago I was contacted by KSMQ, a PBS station out of St. Paul, MN to set up a day they can come and do an interview and do some camera work for their series called "Off 90".... which is a program that features artis, culture and history in Southern Minnesota.... "Off 90", I suppose, is referreing to Interstate 90, which runs east & west through Southern Minnesota and right through my town.... One good thing I can say already.... my shop is the cleanest and most organized (if that) than it has been in over a year..
  10. I've used hide glue before to make some small boxes with no stress on the joints when finished. This project there may be some stress on them and I don't want them coming apart. The reason I used it before is the long open time so I can get all the sides and joints adjusted. Is this a good choice or should I use the normal Titebond?
  11. In my travels yesterday, I stopped in a gun store to look at a varmint rifle. The manager was my salesman. He's interested in displaying a couple pistol presentation boxes. Then, in the liquor store where I get my Dell Bac, that manager wants a steady supply of wine gift boxes. And, the owner of that knife and gun finishing supply house is interested in a few knife cases. Told them all that I'm slow. None seemed to mind. Looks like I'm gonna be busy for a while. Gotta get the table done and another rifle case. Then, start on little boxes. Fun times ahead.
  12. Been wanting to try making these and finally did. Took a couple of cut offs from Menards and made a thicker base Used one for the tops and there they are.
  13. Guess @John Moody has been sleeping late on Friday so here is what my week was like. Working on the pew boxes and in between made a spray. Other with exhaust and working on mahogany shelves for DIL . takes lots of clamps since materiL is to thin for dado or rabbit. this is what they will look like. We will be harvesting material for plaques Monday. My spray booth with inline fan for exhaust. I happen to have lots of acrylic panels from drugstores
  14. Now that school is out for the year, expect "back to school sales" to start in a week or two ;-) One item that I've gotten is the plastic pencil storage boxes. Generally run less than $1 and work well for small parts, small tool assortments, etc. Stack well, snap close, and most are translucent so you can get an idea for what's inside. Available at most office supply (Staples, OfficeMax=-Office Depot) and department store chains (Target, Walmart, etc.) or at dollar stores. They used to also run small bottles of Elmer's glue that were great for popping in a tool

  17. I finished a project yesterday for a customer. I can't tell you right now I know much about these, but he is going to send me a picture when he gets them setup that might help. As I understand they are used to setup model train displays. A piece of foam is placed inside the frame and then the display is built on top but the section are made so they can be separated to move the display. Plans were for 4' sections but he was wanting 2' sections. So I made the modification and built two boxes out of poplar for his display. The boxes or displays had to be
  18. Good day folks, we have been contacted by Virgie, she hit us up at our contact form at www.thepatriotwoodworker.com and she saw some of the fabulous work our Patriot Woodworkers have done in the past at our home page site. She wrote us this. Hello, I found your site by luck and admired the wood pieces you have designed. I wondered if you make and sell small tea boxes with a single compartment? We wrote her this Hello Virgie, we have many talented craftsmen in our club, would you like me to get you in touch with one? I am sure someone can build anything you need at a reasonable co
